After quickly pivoting to remote learning in the middle of the 2020 spring semester, UCCS returned to the scene this fall and welcomed new students and current students back to campus.
Today, Aug. 28, 2020, marks the end of the first week of classes and the second week since move-in. Students, staff and members of the Mountain Lion community are seen around campus following social distancing guidelines and wearing their masks to “Protect the Pride” and help keep the campus open.
